Palavra (En)Cantada – Great Musical Documentary

Palavra (En)Cantada is a documentary by Helena Solberg, that offers an adventure through the Brazilian singer, poet and troubadour. The film looks at the relationship between poetry and music, weaving testimony by the biggest names in Brazilian music with performances and a surprising study of images.”

I saw this last night and absolutely loved it. It’s everything a lover of Brazilian music should see and know. Among all the documentaries on Brazilian music that I’ve seen (maybe 5-6), the only other one that comes close is Moro no Brasil (which I only had the chance to see the beginning of, though it looked equally as interesting).

  1. This documentary it’s really interesting and should be obligatory for all who work with literature and think they’re special, while it’s not necessarily the way it is – particularly in Brazil.
